The Chronicles of San Diego Podcast: An Introduction to the Climate Action Campaign with Sophie Wolfram
Welcome back to the Chronicles of San Diego Podcast!
This is a show all about San Diego and the various different individuals, institutions, events, civic and cultural issues that represent the spirit of America’s Finest City.
One aspect of San Diego that appeals not only to me, but to countless thousands who live, work and play in this city is our generally fantastic weather. As a coastal community, we’re been blessed with a confluence of sun, surf and shade that has attracted residents for generations.
The climate is changing though and not necessarily in a way that behooves human life on the planet. In San Diego, there are those who have made it their mission to stop climate change altogether. It isn’t a simple process, and it isn’t a process that I’m personally familiar with, so I sat down with Sophie Wolfram who is the Director of Programs at the Climate Action Campaign.
CAC, as it is known, endeavors to end climate change for good, and is responsible for San Diego’s groundbreaking Climate Action Plan that legally mandates the city to slash carbon emissions in half. San Diego is now the largest U.S. city with a commitment to 100% clean energy. The City of San Diego’s Climate Action Plan, with its commitments to social equity, jobs, and clean energy, has become a national model for climate action.
In my chat with Sophie we discuss some the objectives of the Climate Action Campaign, as well as where they’ve been successful and where they’re looking for more success along the way. We discuss exactly what a Climate Action Plan is and how vital they are in planning for the future.
